. the fellow on stage last night, he loves teachers. can't get enough of them. >> but this morning mr. romney woke and shook the etch-a-sketch once more venturing out to soak in conservative praise making a surprise visit to colorado's sea-pac conference. romney was greeted with a standing occasion and seized the opportunity to repeat one of his favorite zingers ad nauseam. >> trickle down government. trickle down government. trickle down government. trickle down government will not create the jobs americans need. >> trickle down government, zing. the crowd there clearly energized by romney's debate performance last night and obama's senior adviser david axelrod praised it as well suggesting it was oscar-worthy, though not worthy of the white house. due to some basic problems with simple veracity. >> i'm not looking for a $5 trillion tax cut. i can't understand how you can cut medicare $716 billion for current recipients of medicare. pre-existing conditions are covered under my plan. an unelected board, appointed board who are going to decide what kind of treatments you ought to have. >> not

of the points romney brought up on wednesday night. points he probably would have liked to have made wednesday night, but he's rolling them out now. one of those points taking issue with romney's claim that he would slash the deficit by trimming funding to public television, including big bird. of course, that's become a big laugh line now. president obama saying elmo better watch out. he also had a new line of attack today. he brought up the fact that mitt romney had essentially said his health care plan would include funding pre-existing conditions. that's a claim that the romney campaign has walked back. today president obama said that mitt romney was fact checked by his own campaign, so we're seeing a feistier more aggressive president obama certainly than we saw on wednesday night. >> and the president's advisers, kristin, say that they will likely make some adjustments before the next debate. is it fair to assume that the president may become slightly more aggressive at the next one? >> reporter: i think that it's a fairly safe assumption. one of his top advisers said they're going to ta

clearly, but i think romney has got to have a huge, huge night, and obama would have to have a terrible night to actually move the needle. i don't think that's likely to happen. let's leave all these expectations game aside. let me pick up on one last point on the ryan thing. ryan saying the 47% was inarticulate, whatever the word was he used, that's the pot calling the kettle black. ryan has probably hurt the ticket much more so than the 47%. if you look at two states, florida and ohio, they were extremely close when ryan was picked as the nominee. now obama has considerable leads. you look at the reason why and seniors have gone from being in the romney camp into the obama camp and almost the entire explanation for that is that they do not like the ryan plan on medicare. so ryan has demonstrably hurt this ticket, turt it very badly in the swing states and particularly with seniors. >> congratulations to paul ryan. karen, julian, michael eric dyson who is off to see jay-z later, thank you all. >>> is the media really biased against mitt or is he simply a flawed candidate? >> i love thi

tracking poll indicates we're back where we were before the debate, could it be that the one night stand of romney's performance really isn't swaying voters as much as maybe a drop in the jobless rate to below 8%? >> martin, voters are concerned only about really one thing, and that is jobs. the second thing is the economy, but the economy to the extent it improves the jobs situation. and undoubtedly the job number and the job report friday had a very positive effect on voters. jound lying the presidential contest is who do you trust more to get jobs back -- >> but professor reich, i'm being told every day these polls are a conspiracy, these jobs numbers were a conspiracy. the bureau wation involved in some kind of, i don't know, alien abduction, and produced goous statistics. >> that's paranoia on the right, and the right has been paranoid for years. the bureau of labor statistics is completely insulated from politics. these are professionals. whether the president is republican or democrat, they have a record of telling it exactly as it is. they understand how sensitive these job numbe

night denver broncos legend and executive vice president john elway hit mitt romney with a quick toss to the right introducing and endorsing the republican nominee at a colorado campaign event. but before you get too excited, mr. elway doesn't have a great record off the field of play. he was 0 for 2 last time around after contributing to the campaigns of rudy joule annie and then john mccain. republicans have received three times as much as democrats. according to business insiders walter hickey, 11 nfl team owners currently line up behind mitt romney. none more so than new york jets long suffering owner woody johnson, also a campaign finance co-chair. perhaps remarkably, for a man whose team took a fearsome beating at the weekend without scoring a single point in response, mr. johnson reveals his priority is not his team, but team romney. >> well, i think you always have to put country first, so i think it's very, very important that this election come off with mitt romney and ryan as president and vice president. >> now, this may come as cold comfort for those jets fans who spend t
